Dempster looks ready
Photos
Brewers 5, Cubs 1
Ryan Dempster pitched 206 2/3 innings this year and held a 2.96 ERA.  (AP)
Ryan Dempster looked well prepared for Wednesday's NLDS kickoff, giving up just one run in the final start of a fine 2008 campaign. The bullpen let the game get away in the seventh, and Geovany Soto left in the sixth with a re-aggravated left hand.
